One of the most frequently asked questions we hear is, “What does a new copier cost?” There are a number of factors that determine what a new copier will cost. It’s important to make sure you purchase the correct device and features to suit your needs.
The purchase of a copier is very similar to buying a vehicle, there are many features and applications that must be considered first. For example, you wouldn’t want to buy a ‘MINI Cooper’ when you truly need a pickup truck. The same comparison can be made when buying a print device. You wouldn’t want to buy a desktop printer when you need to print large volumes. A business-class copier would be more suited to your needs.
How much does a new copier cost?
The price will vary depending on what type of print device your organization needs, but to put it simply, a printer will start at less than $200 and an advanced production print device can run over $50K.
An average price range for our most popular business class copier is $3,000 to $12,000 depending on the features required.
What to consider when shopping for a new copier or printer?
There are several options that need to be considered when selecting your new copier. Many of these features will cause the price to vary.
You’ll want to ask yourself what features you need. Here are just a few of the capabilities you might need:
- Multiple paper trays
- Data security
- Access to the cloud or other applications
- Automatic hole punching
- Mac compatibility
The list really goes on and on. A professional print specialist should work with you to fully understand your needs and match your needs with the correct device for your organization.
What are my purchase options?
Purchasing a new copier that meets your needs isn’t necessarily going to be a low-cost investment. For this reason, we offer multiple options for purchase:
- Outright purchase
- Bundled Lease with Service
The most common practice is to lease for 60 months to keep the monthly cost down, but there are options for shorter terms.
What about service and supplies?
Another key consideration when determining how much your device will cost is the anticipated page volume your organization will generate, and whether that volume will be black/white or color. Volume is the factor that directly relates to what your overall cost will be for service and supplies. Throughout the life of the device, it is not uncommon to spend more on service and supplies than you did for the hardware!
